That is interesting Doug D,  when I first read the story in the Daily Express I searched other online newspapers for the statement and found nothing, has far as I know no mention on Sky/bbc/itv news, if there had been I'm sure a member would have said.

Why would the statement only appear in the Express? Why I wonder wasn't it read out on any of the news channels or printed by other newspapers?

Perhaps the Express made up the article.  It is August after all!

The person in charge is then responsible for collating the information and deciding who might be charged. If some completely random patsy gets charged who has nothing to do with it, any member of staff can complain to the IPCC or internally about it. Also, people are picked to be on these serious and high profile teams randomly,  the procedure was changed recently,  so it's not like AR  could pick cronies. That said,  as I said at the beginning I don't know if high profile cases work any differently, but this is standard procedure.

Thanks nglfi.  If this is standard procedure, surely it can`t be a whitewash.  But I keep remembering that GA thinks it`s a big show.

He could have mentioned it over dinner, on Thursday, cut out the rest of the bumf,  this is what he said.

BRITAIN’S top policeman vowed to keep going in the hunt to discover what happened to Madeleine McCann after Scotland Yard’s major operations this summer.

Yesterday, Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe said: “The investigation is still ongoing and we will not be reducing the team.”

He praised Portuguese authorities for allowing Yard detectives to take part in the summer search.

“A reasonable amount of progress has been made,” he added.
However, no trace of Madeleine has been found and police have no idea what happened to her.

Sir Bernard believes the ideal way to tackle the case is with a joint squad of British and Portuguese police.

That would speed up many aspects of the inquiry, but authorities in Lisbon are against the move.

I'm not surprised that the investigation is taking so long, but am not happy that there is still no idea what happened to Madeleine. I imagine if her body was found there would still be extreme doubt who was to blame, unless she was found on/near the route to Huelva or Fatima.

But what I don't think there's any doubt about is that the McCanns have commited fraud, with the T7 and others also involved. I remember Gordon Brown publicly told them in 2007 to keep quiet - which they've patently ignored and instead pursued a course which has kept them and the fund in the limelight.

I know I've said it before, but I believe a fraud enquiry should be established. I'm not involved with the Police or legal services, but I see no reason if they were prosecuted and found guilty of fraud, that they couldn't later be prosecuted for other crimes, at least in the UK. In other words, the establishment of a fraud enquiry wouldn't necessitate closing the current enquiry and should, I believe, produce a result far more quickly.

Anybody who expects justice in this case will be sorely disapointed. If they haven't nailed the real culprits 7 years after the event they never will. My opinion only.
